Thacien Uwagirinshuti is a teacher at Sainte Famille School, a primary and secondary school located in Kigali, Rwanda. He explains how children’s behavior can change thanks to the peace-through-sport sessions of the Peace and Sport Methodology.

  • Through sport, pupils learn how to live together, how to collaborate with each other without any form of discrimination. The pupils who attend our sessions within the #PeacemakersProject learn how to resolve conflicts and how to live in a peaceful way.
